For some time, your puppy’s with strange behavior? Shave the corners of the House or cava bed? Is protecting objects or are more anxious and crying? If your dog has never had a “boyfriend” and presents these attitudes, she may be with what we call a hysterical pregnancy.
The hysterical pregnancy, or pseudociese, occurs in over 50% of the universe not castrated. In addition to the behavioral changes, it causes physical changes, such as the development of the mammary glands.
Why does it happen?
Two factors can encourage this imaginary pregnancy. First, the physiological question. Hormonal changes can influence the behavior and the development of breast tissues. This can happen when sharply decreases the hormone progesterone, present during the heat and for two more months.
When the dog is about to give birth, the level of progesterone, which stimulates the production of the hormone prolactin – which, for your time, acts in the breast tissue, which can activate the production of milk, even without the female be expecting any puppy.
The behavioral issue also favors this condition. But to understand, we must think when the dogs lived in packs. In them, only the dominant individuals spawned, which were also the best hunters. Non-dominant Cougars, which developed a hysterical pregnancy, could handle, with perfection, the dominant females puppies, they come out to hunt.
Thus, females “nannies” approached affectively of leader and developed a good relationship with the next generation. And be influential in a pack was very relevant to survival.
How to deal?
The ideal is to act with naturalness and respect this behavior. Avoid taking the objects that your dog might be protecting. This can make you more anxious and even aggressive. If you need to approach the nest, do it by offering some snack, to make positive associations and don’t stress.
The hysterical pregnancy usually finish in two weeks. But, you can consult a veterinarian to check the need for some medicine to inhibit milk production before that. The best way to prevent this behavior is castration, which can also prevent disease, such as cancer of the breast and uterus in female dogs.
